    What is your question, whether it’s correct/weather it’s a good buy?

    What has your research shown you?

    Looks legit, reasonable price. It would be great if you could get proof of service (e.g. photos of the movement in pieces).

    OK and good luck with your purchase. These do seem to keep going up in asking price!

    Z-serial with a tritium dial? You may want to double-check.

    That 14060 has a tritium dial ("Swiss — T < 25" at the bottom of the dial), and as far as I know Rolex stopped using tritium around 1998. But you say "Z" serial...that would date the watch from around 2006/7, and this watch is not that new! I'd check up on this. Otherwise it looks very similar to my own 14060 from 1996. I think it might have been lightly polished just once, but it's hard to tell from the photos...the lug holes don't seem quite as crisp as on my un-polished one. The bezel is original, I'm sure. It has the serif "flat" (or "fat") 4. The patina on the bezel pip has similar patina to mine. But try and do more checking on the service history...who did it, Rolex or an independent? Any papers to prove provenance? These 5-digit Submariners do seem to be rising in price, and if everything checks out I can't recommend a 14060 enough. €10000 is a lot of money, but a 14060 is a timeless, iconic classic, a great everyday watch, comfortable and reliable! You won't regret buying a 14060. Good luck!

    Add to that the fact that the case has lugs with holes… which stopped in 2003 if I’m not mistaken… that case is not a Z serial for sure…

    Overall it looks ok, from what I can tell from those pics.

    Does the coronet on the crown look a little soft?

    All 14060 and 14060m have lug holes regardless of their age. Terrible pics as they are blurry which makes having a close look at the case lines difficult. If it’s had a polish it’s well worth knowing in advance. Not necessarily a deal breaker but definitely something to take into account.

    10k feels a bit on the expensive side for me but they are definitely not cheap but watches. I would assume there will be loads out there for sale so I wouldn’t go rushing in, especially at that price.

    Hi,

    Like others it seems good.
    Ask for a picture taken from the top of the case, watch turned over the table.
    Something like that, it's easier to show the polish.

    After that it's only my opinion but if a watch has been polished correctly, it's not the end of the world... I prefer a polished watch with clear traceability than an "unpolished" one with inconsistencies like Serial with Hands, dial, bracelet ...
